College is a formative period, where students decide and learn about what they want to do with their lives. All the new friends, new experiences, and new learning opportunities help to shape their future - - -but it can be a lot to learn to handle, especially for Christian students who want to keep their faith alive and well. It's critical that students know how to handle college before they're in the thick of it.

  • How do you grow spiritually?
  • How do you manage your time to both study well and have fun?
  • Is all truth relative?
  • Are there good reasons to be a Christian?
  • As a Christian, how should you view issues like dating and sex?

Each chapter of this new edition has been updated, and the author has included a new chapter on Christianity, homosexuality, and the Bible.

"In this updated second edition, Jonathan has improved an already excellent resource by adding the latest evidence for theism and Christianity and including critical discussions of controversial social and moral issues. If you're a student, don't you dare enter college until you've allowed Jonathan Morrow to prepare you. Welcome to College: A Christ-Follower's Guide for the Journey is essential to your success at university." -- Biola University

J. Walton, former mens discipleship coordinator at Biola University

"If I could give just one apologetics book to a Christian going off to college, it is this one. Jonathan Morrow goes well beyond providing evidence for Christianity (as most such books do)--he provides succinct and sound answers to the kinds of moral and emotional issues that often trip up Christian college students. Highly recommended!" -- Frank Turek, broadcaster, author of I Don't Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist"

"I know of no other book that has the breadth and depth of Welcome to College to help us equip the next generation with the truth. . . . My own kids will certainly have a copy in their hands as they step onto the college campus." -- Brett Kunkle, student impact director at Stand to Reason (str.org)

No other book better equips young people for the challenges that lie ahead. I cannot recommend it enough!" -- president of Life Training Institute

"Jonathan Morrow has both the intellectual resources and the practical experience to provide an effective students' survival guide to university life. I'm impressed with the wide array of issues he discusses, from intellectual challenges to financial problems to sexual snares to getting enough sleep! All this is done in easily digestible bits for the student on the run.

"This is a book I wish I could have given to my two kids when they went off to college!" -- William Lane Craig, theologian, professor of philosophy, and author of Reasonable Faith

Moreland, author, distinguished professor at Talbot School of Theology, Biola University

He writes as an older brother whose knowledge of the territory is recent and realistic. In short, readable chapters he covers all the expected issues and a good number of unexpected ones as well. Here is wisdom, not legalism. I highly recommend this book!" -- Garrett DeWeese, professor at large at Talbot School of Theology, Biola University
